Everest High Pass Trek

Everest High Pass Trek is a more challenging alternative to the traditional trek to Everest Base Camp with an ascent of Kala Patar and Gokyo Ri as well as crossing the Himalayan mountain passes of Cho La and Renjo La.

After Base Camp we walk out over the Cho La pass into the Gokyo valley rather than retracing the same trail back to Namche as per the standard Everest Base Camp itinerary. In the morning we climb Gokyo Ri for views of the Everest massif and in the afternoon we explore the numerous glacial lakes in the area. After crossing our last pass of the Renjo La we descend into the Thame valley, one of the main trading routes with Tibet, and then walk back to Namche Bazaar and Lukla.
